Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease that continues to result in huge economic losses in livestock production besides human health implications. To continue actions against this important but neglected disease in animals, the OIE Regional Representation for Asia and the Pacific organised the “OIE Webinar on Progress and Challenges in Brucellosis Control in the Asia Pacific Region” on 29 July 2021 in which more than 135 participants representing the animal health sectors from 32 OIE Members attended. The webinar was organised with the objectives to share updates on regional disease situation, progress and challenges in animal brucellosis including aspects of disease epidemiology, diagnostics, and control options. Speakers from the OIE Reference Laboratories and selected Members made technical presentations on various topics.
At the group discussion session, the participants had a free and frank discussion wherein they identified constraints and priority actions to be followed up by all to continue actions against this important disease.
